In the hours after a college party, a woman told police in a Sydney hospital room about a young man with a French name who allegedly ignored her pleas to “stop it” and “get off me”.
She said in the recorded interview she was kissing her attacker at the St John’s College end-of-year formal before they ended up in the car park, a court on Tuesday heard.
“I was drinking a lot, like a lot more than I would normally drink,” the woman said in the interview played in the NSW District Court.
“I was with my friend and she was making out with someone and I was making out with him.
“I remember eventually ending up in the college car park and I remember being on the ground and saying I don’t want to do that, get off me.”
The woman in the October 2015 police interview said she didn’t know the man as he wasn’t a resident of the college, but she thought his name was French.
Police later that month arrested Jean Claude Perrottet, the younger brother of NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet, and the 20-year-old is now on trial after pleading not guilty to three counts of sexual intercourse without consent.
The alleged victim in her first police interview said she hadn’t eaten since breakfast and had consumed at least six drinks but she did remember saying “no, stop”.
On Tuesday she told the court via video link that she later walked back to her college room while Perrottet followed.
She said she thought there would be people in the corridor but there was no one, and when she opened her door Perrottet entered quickly and shut the door behind him.
“I think I was crying by that point, I don’t think I said anything, I don’t remember if he said anything,” the woman said.
The woman left her room and found a friend nearby, telling her “I can’t do that again”, she said.
“(The friend) went back with me into my room and I don’t remember specifically what happened after that but the male left.”
Under cross-examination by Perrottet’s barrister Alissa Moen, the woman said she wasn’t certain she didn’t stop and talk to other people before going into her room.
She agreed she didn’t initially tell police she was on her period at the time, or that the alleged assaults included oral sex.
Ms Moen in her opening address previously told the court Perrottet didn’t deny two of the acts of sexual intercourse but said they were consensual.
He completely denied the third alleged act and Ms Moen said she would challenge the woman’s reliability.
The trial continues.
